US court finds Syria liable for journalist Colvin’s killing

A US court has held the Syrian government liable for at least $302.5 million in damages for its role in the 2012 death of renowned American journalist Marie Colvin. Colvin, a 56-year-old war correspondent, was killed in the Syrian city of Homs while reporting on the conflict. The lawsuit accused the government of deliberately targeting a makeshift broadcast studio where Colvin lived.

Sure, and how will the US accept responsibility for the deaths of thousands of Syrians who were caught up in its illegal wars?

Although very sad when anybody dies. How many billions of dollars do America owe to the hundreds of thousands of innocent people it's killed, and how much have they paid.

USA funded Taliban in Afghanistan in the 80s. USA funded salifist militias in Libya and Syria. Wonder how many innocent lives is the US gov't is responsible for ending in the most violent ways imaginable?

Tragic death but hanging out was terrorists in a war zone has its risks. UK and US shoveled more than $300 million in terror groups, to topple Assad, the people's choice. They have the money, they should pay. And how did they arrive at a figure like this, is this the value they assigned to her life? Incredible times we live in.

“It’s a war and she came illegally to Syria, she worked with the terrorists, and because she came illegally, she’s responsible of everything that befell her,” Assad said.
